Was thinking about this, I am wondering how many people actually simply skip a good breakfast for any reason.
I know I do, and my main reason is... I am sick of cereals.
So thought why not start up a thread relating to breakfast ideas.
Watch this space...lol

Cheese muffin

Man these are so easy and so delicious you will not be able to wait for them to cool. The great thing about these is that they take just 10 minutes in the oven so if you are having people over just pop them in the oven a few minutes before they arrive and you will treat them to warm fresh cheese muffins. (makes 12)
I also like these with plenty of butter and a something sweet so you will usually find them smothered in marmalade or a jam of some description if they are on my plate. Give these a try, the family will love you no matter what…
What you need
120g sifted flour (1 cup sifted flour)
3 teaspoons baking powder
150g grated cheddar cheese
1/4 teaspoon mustard powder (don’t leave this out)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
185ml milk
The process
Heat your oven to 200 Celsius and butter a muffin tin.
Sift the flour, salt, baking powder and mustard powder together into a bowl and then add the cheese and give it a quick turn with a spoon.
Whisk the egg lightly with a fork to break it up and add to the milk, then add it to the flour mixture and give it a good mix to distribute the cheese evenly and make a consistent batter.
Spoon into the muffin tin and bake for 10 minutes.
It really doesn’t get much simpler than that folks and they are very delicious. They will also keep in the fridge for a few days ready for work or school

Banana bread/muffin

What you need
2 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon mixed spice (I didnt have but used 1/2 cinnamon and 1/2 ginger)
150g soft butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs beaten
1 cup mashed bananas (the riper the better)

The process
Oven temp 180 degrees celsius
Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl with electric beaters until soft, Add the eggs and beat well, add the mashed banana and mix well. Sift in all the dry ingredients and mix to a smooth batter and mix well again. Pour into a lightly greased loaf tin and pop into the oven for 35-40 minutes. Check at 35 minutes with a toothpick and if it comes out clean you’re done. Remove your banana bread from tin and let it cool for about 10 minutes on a wire rack if you can resist the smell. If not, go ahead and cut yourself a slice of the warm delicious banana bread and load it up with some butter, I tell you it is irresistible. You can also add a palm full of chopped nuts like walnuts to make it a really special banana bread.

I like mine with a good spread of butter. Enjoy!

Flap jacks

I have added cinnamon to the mixture for a flavor difference but it is not essential to the recipe. Try them out this weekend for a sumptious breakfast, add a few fruit slices and lashings of butter and syrup, you won’t be sorry.
What you need
1 1/2 cups cake flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
Pinch salt (about 1/4 teaspoon)
1 1/4 cups milk
1/4 cup melted butter
2 large eggs lightly beaten
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 teaspoon of cinnamon (optional)
The process
This is such an easy recipe. Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix together to form a smooth batter.
Heat a knob of butter with about 1 teaspoon of sunflower or vegetable oil on medium to hot heat and spoon in amounts of about 1/5 cup for a nice size crumpet. Wait until the top has bubbles popping all over the surface and then turn over to brown the other side. As you turn them they will puff up beautifully.
These are really fantastic folks, you must try them.

Buttermilk pancakes
There are few things better than smell of freshly cooking pancakes in the morning and this buttermilk pancake recipe is just what the doctor ordered. The challenge is to get them to the plate without eating them yourself as soon as they are done. What you will find as that the kids will be waiting by your side, plate in hand to take them from you as soon as they are ready. (Makes 12 10cm pancakes.)
What you need
125g flour
½ teaspoon sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon bicarb of soda
¾ teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons melted butter (30g)
1 egg
250ml buttermilk
Butter for frying
The process
The real secret to this recipe requires some patience… if you have it you will be well rewarded, so follow the recipe to the T.
Sift together all of your dry ingredients, make a well and add the egg, melted butter and buttermilk, stir to a thin creamy texture.
Now cover the bowl with a cloth and leave it to stand for at least ½ an hour. Go and have a shower, catch up on the news or have a cuppa… but let the mixture be…
When you are ready to cook, check that the batter is not too thick and if need be, add a little more buttermilk.
Heat a heavy based pan to medium and add a little butter, ladel in enough batter to make a 10cm pancake. Let them cook until bubbles begin to pop on the surface which should be about 3 minutes. Turn and brown the other side.
These are fantastic… pile them up, place a generous amount of butter on top and drizzle over some maple syrup, honey or your favorite jam.
The recipe doubles without any problem.

Pumpkin fritters
Try them, they are real simple and the taste, well let’s just say I ate for three. (enough for 4 people if you are not me)
What you need
600g pumpkin chopped (this can be prepared the day before or even left overs )
250ml water
pinch of salt
1 egg, beaten
100g cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of cinnamon
Oil for frying
60ml sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
The process
Place your pumpkin cubes and water with the pinch of salt into a pot onto the stove, bring to a boil and then turn down to medium and allow to simmer for about 20 minutes or so until the pumpkin is nice and soft. Drain off the water, allow it to cool for a few minutes and then mash it well.
Put a pot with about 6cm of oil in the bottom onto a medium to high heat before you continue.
Once the oil is on and the pumpkin well mashed transfer it to a mixing bowl and add the egg, flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Give it a good mix to distribute all of the ingredients.
Now take a small amount of batter and test to see that the oil is hot but not too hot. The batter should bubble gentle and not bubble over.
Take tablespoon sizes and drop them into the oil, doing about 6 at a time until they are golden brown and crisp all over.
Place the cooked pumpkin fritters onto some kitchen paper to remove some of the oil and then cover in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
There are few things that will satisfy a craving like these little beauties.

Basic French Toast
(4 servings)

• 10 to 12 slices white bread - preferably day-old (absorbs more egg mixture)
• 1 cup milk
• 4 large eggs
• 1 teaspoon sugar - optional
• 1 teaspoon salt
• butter - for frying
• syrup

Break eggs into a wide, shallow bowl or pie plate; beat lightly with a fork. Stir in sugar, salt, and milk.

Over medium-low heat, heat griddle or skillet coated with a thin layer of butter or margarine.

Place the bread slices, one at a time, into the bowl or plate, letting slices soak up egg mixture for a few seconds, then carefully turn to coat the other side. Soak/coat only as many slices as you will be cooking at one time.

Transfer bread slices to griddle or skillet, heating slowly until bottom is golden brown. Turn and brown the other side. Serve French toast hot with butter and syrup.

Banana Bars
(12 servings)


• 4 cups uncooked regular OR quick oats
• 1 and 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas - about 3 bananas
• 1 cup packed brown sugar
• 3/4 cup butter or margarine - softened
• 1/2 cup raisins (or dried prunes or apricots)
• 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or other favorite nuts
• 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
• 1 egg
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 13 x 9 baking pan with cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until consistency is "fluffy". Add egg, bananas, cinnamon and salt and stir. Add all remaining ingredients and stir until mixed well.

Spread mixtured into baking pan.

Bake about 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Allow bars to cool before cutting into squares and serving.


These store well in the refrigerator for a week. In fact, I like them best out of the refrigerator when they're a little cool.
